Pa e 14 Firewood restrictions in effect on state land The recent discovery of emer- ald ash borer (EAB) in a St. Paul neighborhood means that people should no longer pack firewood when making summer camping plans. Minnesota Department of Nat- ural Resources (DNR) Commis- sioner Mark Holsten May 20 issued a revised order dealing with use of firewood on state land. It will be published in the State Register from June 15-28. Under the new order, only fire- wood purchased at a state park or from a DNR-approved vendor may be brought onto state land. More firewood information is available . Approved firewood vendors must supply firewood that meets one of the following standards: • Non-ash firewood originating on lands within Minnesota and within 100 miles of the DNR land on which it is to be used. • Firewood originating from Minnesota that has been heat- treated in a kiln certified by the Minnesota Department of Agri- culture. • Split firewood from Minne- sota that is 100 percent debarked according to federal guidelines (removal of bark and outer one- half inch of sapwood).

In state parks and des- ignated campgrounds in state for- ests, people are prohibited from scavenging dead wood. The new order specifies that firewood originating from a quar- antined county in Minnesota will be approved only for use in that county. Firewood from counties con- tiguous to quarantined counties in Minnesota will be approved only for use in those counties. Currently, there is a quarantine on firewood, ash trees and ash prod- ucts in Hennepin, Houston and Ramsey counties. To slow the spread of EAB, the quarantine prohibits the move- ment of the following items out of Hennepin, Houston and Ramsey counties: • Firewood from hardwood (non-coniferous) species. • Entire ash trees. • Ash limbs and branches. • Ash logs or untreated ash lum- ber with bark attached. • Hncomposted ash chips and uncomposted ash bark chips greater than one inch in two of the three dimensions. More information about the quarantine is available . While EAB spreads slowly on its own, it can hitch a ride to new areas when people transport fire- wood or other wood products infested with the larvae. Officials urge Minnesotans to take steps to keep EAB from spreading: • Don't transport firewood, even within Minnesota. • Don't bring firewood along on a camping trip. • Buy the wood you need locally from an approved vendor. • Don't bring extra wood home with you. • Don't buy or move firewood that came from outside of Minne- sota. Minnesotans should not buy firewood from people selling it door-to-door if the wood origi- nated from outside Minnesota. r m m m i m m m m i m i i i +i i+iiiiiiiiiiiiiiili+iiiiiii!i+iii+i+i+ 1-County g Ne~Js i Always something to lead...
